Stencil Aliens and No Regrets

Today I have an art journal page to share with you.
My stencil aliens are throwing all the new Crafter's Workshop stencils all over my art room.
So I decided to pick up a few and use them before I put them away.
I used modeling paste, super heavy gesso, rub-ons, regular gesso, acrylic paints, acrylic glazing liquid, and these stencils from The Crafter's Workshop.

   


First I added a layer of gesso to the background with a palette knife including adding one set of flowers from the Daily Buzz Stencil. When it dried I added another set of flowers with modeling paste. Next, I used blue and green acrylic paints with water, the Stepping Stones stencil and rub-ons. Plus a little super heavy gesso.



This part can be scary but you have to try it. 
I learned it from Donna Downey. Glazing.
You mix one part paint to two or more parts Acrylic Glazing Liquid.
Paint it all over the page and let it dry just a little.


Then take a baby wipe and wipe it off. 
The color gets caught in all the texture on the page.


I decided I want to add a little darker tone to the page.
So I added another glaze of gray.


Here is the finished page.


You can get all The Crafter's Workshop stencils at Scrapbook.com.
I also share my post on my Facebook page.
